Re: What's with the availability of .22 ammo?

It's not so much a political issue as an economic issue. Back during the ban scare, a large jump of demographics bought guns including .22s as an entry level. This rush initially hit all calibers, but .22 being the cheapest was bought in bulk whereas usually it was bought casually. The manufacturers...

Re: Firearms Chat 3: #pewpewlife

Anyone have thoughts on adding loops to AR magazines? Was digging them out of a Sneaky Bag at my course and it would be a feasible way to get more real estate and make them easier to feel for. I'm compelled to just tape some cord on because these are USGI mags and I want to break them and get PMAGs,...

Re: Firearms Chat 3: #pewpewlife

Perfect timing, my hardware-brand electronic muffs messed with my cheek weld all weekend at a carbine course and I was debating getting the HLs solely based on the thinner profile. For indoor ranges I do Surefires under my electronic set, for this outdoor course I risked just the soft plugs because ...

Re: How many rifle magazines for a get-home kit?

OTOH, there was a bad example that happened on LI a few years back. There was this retired sergeant that liked to show up at heavy jobs. One day, there was this burglary call. Nassau County precinct, NC crime team in plainclothes, MTA uniform, and Mr Retired showed up. All uniformed recognized Mr. ...

Re: Firearms Chat 3: #pewpewlife

Damn this thread. I'm going to be picking up a police surplus Smith and Wesson and competing with it solely to try and beat guys running modern guns with it. Looking at a Model 64 (It's a stainless model 10), some speedloaders, and some kind of usable holster. Also, I need a cowboy hat.

Re: Talk me out of a revolver

Locally, I now am in touch with some one selling off a newer Model 10 for $325. Or, I can pay 320 plus FFL transfer and shipping for a Model 64 in stainless. Leaning towards stainless since this will be a beater.

Re: Talk me out of a revolver

Talk me out of a revolver

To begin, my carry pistol, competition pistol, and nightstand pistol is also the first pistol I got from a cop relative when I turned 21. Glock 17 in an Arch Angel appendix holster every day, it works oddly well despite the comical size of the gun. I nearly bought a discounted Springfield 1911 for c...

Re: Medieval remedy kills up to 90% of MRSA bacteria

If it does show equal effectiveness, I imagine this could lead could but back on antibiotic use and stem the growth of resistant bacteria? I'm personally a doubter of homeopathy and its popularity, but the early breakthroughs in medicine which bordered on alchemy are fascinating.

At this point, I'd like to see most zombies being heavily degraded and a reduced threat while newly dead are considered an uncommonly more substantial threat. It's been a long while since we've seen a recently turned person do much damage, the typical walker is now waved off with a couple stabs whil...

Re: "Walking Dead" Cable Series

At least three people last episode made it clear he is somehow saving Tara after her injury. But this was never really shown or expounded on. Not that I don't love porchdick, he just shouldn't be a main plot point.

Halfway through last week's episode, I'm actually starting to feel the writing needs work. This guy on the porch has been the most two-dimensional character to date. He's a surgeon, supposedly, but talks like he's drunk 24/7. He just hangs around being taunting and cocky asking to get killed. He's n...

Entry level recurve bow?

I'm looking for a first recurve to mess around with as I learn. I'm told the Martin Jaguar is affordable but quality, and it being a takedown saves on storage space. Any other recommendations for a solid first bow at the lowest price possible?

Re: Firearms Chat 3: #pewpewlife

I'm a middle-of-the-pack competitor and at one point was beaten by a young guy rocking a revolver and cleaning stages to avoid time penalties. I'd never carry one, but I'd love a beat-up one to run occasionally on a stage.

Re: Firearms Chat 3: #pewpewlife

The initial article stated, "It's basically a Glock 26 but thinner" and posted a side-by-side comparison where I honestly could not tell the two apart except for the finger grooves. Here's hoping that makes it easier to find a used 26 as everyone upgrades.

Re: Tools that could fit into pen slots?

I did use to carry one of the WD-40 pens in an organizer, that darn cap kept popping off so often it dried out within a month. Very good idea if they improved the cap design somehow, maybe make it more like a Sharpie with more contact for friction?
